Terrified tour guide freaks out and crawls on a glass-bottomed walkway after it suddenly 'cracks' under his feet
China's passion for glass-bottomed walkways has reached a new level as one scenic spot is deliberately making the see-through panels crack at over 3,800 feet high.
With the help of sensors and special effects, the glass floor would appear to shatter as the tourists walk on them to make the visitors' journey more exciting.
Not every one knows it's a trick though, as footage has emerged showing one terrified tour guide wobbling and crawling on the walk way as soon as he sees cracks on the glass.
People's Daily Online posted the 10-second-long video on Twitter today, showing the tour guide yelling as he looked down the transparent walk way bottom on Taihang Mountain.
Tourists who followed behind stopped at the covered glass walk as the man screamed.
East Taihang Mountain Scenic Spot mentioned the video in a post on Wechat on October 9 claiming the incident to be taken at the last section of glass walk where special effect has been installed.
Located at Hebei Province, the East Taihang Glasswalk measures 266 metres (872 ft) long and 2 metres (6.6 ft) wide.
It's built at 1180 metres (3871 ft) high above sea level, along the mountain cliff.
The cracks on the walkway is one of the features of the attraction, along with surround sound effect and light decorations.
There are infrared sensor installed near the end of the walkway to detect any human movement in order to present the cracking effect on the glass.
'The cracks will follow your steps wherever you go. You will hear the cracking sound even you walk blindfolded,' stated in the post.

It is part of the new "entertainment". Frankly if your heart is poor, you shouldn't step on it in the first place, just like you wouldn't ride on roller coaster if you have heart disease. Anyway, China is going big in investing in new touristy places all over China. Many countries don't even have this kind of glass bridge, yet there plenty already in China.
